Bible History 
 9:00 a.m. on Zoom and Friendship Center (In person)

The Bible History Class is a discussion class in which we seek to determine the meaning and application of scripture for our daily lives. We look at the context in which the scripture was written for better understanding.  Our discussions are Biblically directed, and we use a variety of literature to lead us. We often study the history and culture surrounding a Biblical story in order to better understand its meaning for us. 

Our current study is Christianity’s Family Tree by Adam Hamilton, Adam Hamilton presents a welcoming, inspiring vision of eight Christian denominations and faith traditions. Comparing the Christian family to our own extended families, he contends that each denomination has a unique, valuable perspective to offer on the Christian faith.

The traditions he examines are Orthodoxy, Catholicism, Lutheranism, Presbyterianism, Anglicanism, Baptists, Pentecostalism, and Methodism. For each group, Hamilton gives a brief history, outlines major beliefs, and describes some things we can learn from that tradition to strengthen our own Christian faith.

 Inquirers Class 
11:30 a.m. Sundays on Zoom

This  class studies everything from prayer topics to religious history. We choose our books after receiving recommendations from others, or if someone wants to explore a topic. We vote on the topic by the tried and true button method, the book receiving the most buttons goes to the number one spot for the next book to study.

All are welcome to join our group for a particular study, one Sunday, or to become part of our little ‘family’ of believers.  

This class is fragrance free. We are currently studying the book of Matthew from the New Testament in the Bible.
